Proving Cause in a Trucking Accident
A truck accident can be the result of driver fatigue, driver negligence, or it can be caused by misconduct on the part of the driver or the trucking company. A mechanical failure can result if a truck is overloaded beyond what the truck-and it’s brakes-can safely carry. Too small or too large a load can also lead to problems securing cargo that can fly off the top of a flatbed or shift around within a semi truck, causing the truck to sway and tip. There is also the problem of truck drivers working excessive hours.
We have years of experience handling truck accident cases. We know how to investigate these accidents to uncover misconduct and falsified driver logs. We have used GPS technology in the past to locate drivers and track their routes.
It is critical to have an experienced attorney involved as soon as possible in a truck accident or 18-wheeler wreck, before valuable evidence you need to prove your personal injury claim is lost or destroyed.
